I'd rather go on an all-Crisco diet than sit through Poor White Trash again.

One of those guilty pleasures that has no business being as stupidly entertaining as it is.

You rarely see a movie these days with the conviction to lock 'breezy' and 'zany' squarely in its comic crosshairs and keep it there for the entire film, or the singularity of vision to sustain such a tone. But this deliciously campy film does just that.

Audience Reviews for Poor White Trash

½

Terrible, just terrible. Poor White Trash is a comedy about the desperate attempt for a trailer park trash family to send their son to college by robbery. Well, it's not funny. Sean Young gave the audience a wonderful performance but there is just so much cliche, character archetypes and over the top acting.

5.5/10. A bit too over the top and exagerrated. It's not a complete loss, it has some funny moments and good scenes, as well as some good touches along the way. But it's a one note movie and it wears thin.

Don't waste your time. Never did I see such a Tarantino fan boy flick this bad since Blood, Guts, Bullets and Octane.
